Created in 2011 in Clermont-Ferrand by Martial Déflacieux, Artistes en résidence is a non-profit organization which supports contemporary creation by organizing residencies for artists and researchers in contemporary art. We support the international mobility of artists and the circulation of ideas and know-how, through the development of a vast network of local, national and international partners. Artists are at the heart of the A·R’s project. Our team offers them curatorial support and provides them with spaces as well as human, technical and financial resources. A·R understands residencies as a period entirely dedicated to research and experimentation, with no obligation to produce. This orientation intends to provide artists with the necessary time for qualitative and in-depth research, to promote a real immersion in the territory and to allow all the trial and error, detours and critical questioning necessary for the development of their art practice.

Local Information

Artistes en résidence is located in Clermont-Ferrand, France. The studio is a large 150 m2 space, which can be adjusted owing to its modular walls. It is located at La Diode, a multidisciplinary cultural centre, which A·R shares with Les Ateliers, the Pôle Chorégraphique La Diode, the Auvergne Regional Choir, Maison des jeux and Videoformes. A·R and Les Ateliers share an exhibition space, which allows artists to test hangings, take pictures, and organize public events to share their research. Provided by the Clermont-Ferrand City Council and located close to the city centre, the 100 m2 apartment comprises three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, and has access to a 200 m2 garden. It is the place where residents live, and is also a hub of encounters between contemporary art professionals, since A·R makes vacant rooms in the apartment available to its local partners with a view to pooling resources.
